We’ve mentioned it a number of times on the blog, but we are finally able to share with you the cover for Lavie Tidhar‘s excellent THE VIOLENT CENTURY!


The novel, which has already been receiving some excellent advanced praise, is due to be published in October 2013 by Hodder Books. Here’s the synopsis:
